General Provisions
Operating PoliciesLanguage

Language:
Page 471, after line 14, insert:
"e. No funding in this budget, or matching funds related to funding included in this budget, may be provided for human stem cell research from stem cells directly obtained from human embryos; however, research conducted using stem cells other than embryonic stem cells may be funded.
f. No funding in this budget, or matching funds related to funding included in this budget, may be provided for research on cells or tissues derived from induced abortions on humans."

Explanation:
(This amendment would prohibit state funding of embryonic stem cell research itself, but it would also permit entities that conduct such research (without using state money) to receive state funding. Entities that receive funding for embryonic stem cell research from federal and private sources may also receive state dollars for purposes other than embryonic stem research. State funding of research on aborted fetuses would be prohibited.)
